Psalm 114

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    When Isr'el out of Egypt went,
       and did his dwelling change,
     When Jacob's house went out from those
       that were of language strange,
2    He Judah did his sanctuary,
       his kingdom Isr'el make:
3    The sea it saw, and quickly fled,
       Jordan was driven back.

4    Like rams the mountains, and like lambs
       the hills skipp'd to and fro.
5    O sea, why fledd'st thou? Jordan, back
       why wast thou driven so?
6    Ye mountains great, wherefore was it
       that ye did skip like rams?
     And wherefore was it, little hills,
       that ye did leap like lambs?

7    O at the presence of the Lord,
       earth, tremble thou for fear,
     While as the presence of the God
       of Jacob doth appear:
8    Who from the hard and stony rock
       did standing water bring;
     And by his pow'r did turn the flint
       into a water-spring.
